"I felt it" reports:
port hardy / MMI IV (Light shaking)
kyuquot / MMI IV (Light shaking): Dog barked
Port Hardy (Canada) (104 km NW from epicenter)(no details): I work with the school district, and am familiar with earthquake drills. The earthquake that we had this morning came on so suddenly, and while I was asleep. It happened so suddenly, it seems like all the preparation in the world doesn't give you time to jump into action for any safety techniques. (via EMSC)
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
